PS: Whitey Ford commemorative patch.

Almost forgot, in the last post, to tell you about the Big Finish: the crooked, somewhat dinged WFCP. But its heart is in the right place.If this patch had been done right, we'd unequivocally like the whole idea better than dopey mass-produced jersey bits. These are actually more meaningful. Aren't they? They don't try to be something they're not. On the back, the language is clear: THE RELIC CONTAINED IN THIS CARD IS NOT FROM ANY GAME OR SEASON. In other words, this relic represents a warm, vintage thought. That's all. And one more if: if we were the paranoid sort, we'd begin to think that it kind of seems as if Mets fans cannot escape the Bronx Bombers.

Topps has factory sets at Target where the 'bonus' on top is a Mantle patch such as this. I regret not buying a 2007 Factory set that had a '53 reprint with a piece of one of Mick's old leisure suits embedded in it now.

In other news, here's some DC holiday cheer:
